SOME GEMS IN THE QURAN: (Qur’an 30:21), (Qur’an 32:7-9) & (Qur’an 69:13-18)

 

REPOSE, AFFECTION & MERCY… (Quran 30:21) (From the book Qur’an – the Lnguistic Miracle Book,pg 63-64/155 found from linguisticmiracle.com)

And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. (Qur’an 30:21)

“that you may find repose [taskoonoo] in them”. The word in arabic for Repose is; Sakoon.

Sakoon = Tranquility/calmness. Anyone who has been in love has felt this strongly when they are with their lover. This is one of the strongest feelings that person will feel when they are with their lover.

This feeling of joy, contentment and tranquility makes the person have extreme love for that person. So Allah after explaining the first attribute of Tranquility describes the next stage; “..and he has put between you affection (Mawaddah)..” Mawaddah is love with a passion, an extreme liking to something.

So the lover;

1) Feels at ease [feels calmness] with the person.

2) Has an extreme passionate liking to them.

This Mawaddah stage usually lasts for around 2 years.

As the couple continues living together, the passion gradually lessens. Both partners mature a bit more and the fantasies die out a bit more. So many obstacles come within their way because they are living with each other. Before they were both blinded by passion, but now they see each other’s mistakes and errors.

So Allah tells us; “and He has put between you affection and MERCY (rahmah)..

So now that the passions have slightly died out, and the calmness isn‟t always there in the relationship (arguments do happen in marriage) – Allah tells us that He has placed between the lovers Mercy.

So even though they might argue with each other, they have mercy on each other and forgive. This mercy keeps your relationship going, because deep down inside you still care that your partner doesn’t get hurt.

“..Verily, in that are signs for people who reflect.”

 

CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE QURAN, (Qur’an 32:7-9) (Imran Hussein) [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jW_8pOj5JHQ&t=1s]

Allah gave us consciousness. But recently I spoke with sheikh ??? {couldn’t quite hear the name} and he shared this absolute Gem with me and he uses this argument and he has found this beautiful link with this argument to the Qur’an. Now I want to share that with you today because when he shared this with me I literally almost fell of my chair. So Allah says:

Who made everything He has created good, and He began the creation of man from clay. (Qur’an 32:7)

Then He made his offspring from semen of worthless water (male and female sexual discharge). (Qur’an 32:8)

Then He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him the soul (created by Allah for that person), and He gave you hearing (ears), sight (eyes) and hearts. Little is the thanks you give! (Qur’an 32:9)

Now you guys probably picked up on that. Although it is in English there is a grammatical shift. The shift is so powerful because Allah is talking to us in third person through Ayah 7, 8 and the beginning of Ayah 9.

Allah says he created the creation of man from clay, then he created his progeny from despised fluid, and then he proportioned this creation then Allah says he breathed into him a soul that He created and He gave him hearing, sight and feelings and all of these things. And then Allah says, “Little are you grateful!”

So there is a shift from the 3rd person to the 2nd person. And it is so powerful when you think about this because till the point where Allah says He breathed into this creation a soul that He created, Allah speaks to us in 3rd person.  But once the soul is placed within this being and this being is conscious and is able to understand, to reflect, and to think; then Allah shifts the focus to this being (which is us). Then He tells us, “Little are you grateful!”.

Then Allah is directly referring and speaking to us because we are now able to understand. That is so powerful. This is the power of the Quran. It is so precise. Even through the text and the journey that Allah takes us through the creation of man.

 

SURAH AL HAQQAH (The 69th Surah)- Order of words gradually going Upwards in location: (From the book Qur’an–the Linguistic Miracle Book,pg 97/155 found from linguisticmiracle.com)

Then when the Trumpet will be blown with one blowing (the first one), (Qur’an 69:13)

And the earth and the mountains shall be removed from their places, and crushed with a single crushing, (Qur’an 69:14)

Then on that Day shall the (Great) Event befall, (Qur’an 69:15)

And the heaven will split asunder, for that Day it (the heaven will be frail (weak), and torn up, (Qur’an 69:16)

And the angels will be on its sides, and eight angels will, that Day, bear the Throne of your Lord above them. (Qur’an 69:17)

That Day shall you be brought to Judgement, not a secret of you will be hidden. (Qur’an 69:18)

For example: (1) earth > (2) mountains > (3) heaven > (4) > angels, (5) > Throne (‘Arsh of Allah), (6) – Our Lord Allah (above them all)

It is quite interesting how the Quran explains what will happen when the Trumpet will be blown; from the earth all the way to Allah above them all, right?
